Greetings from Santa Cruz, CA!
I arrived early this afternoon for the registration. Just got back from the evening reception dinner. People were slowly streaming in from all over the world.
The resort is rather gorgeous, high up in the hills overlooking Santa Cruz. All the sessions will be held at the resort's conference center, so those of us who are staying at the resort will find that to be rather convenient.
The first day of the workshop will start bright and early tomorrow. There should be several plenary talks tomorrow. So there should be plenty to report on.
